The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap

AUTHOR : Wendy Welch

PUBLISHER : St. Martin’s Griffin

PRICE : $14.99

GENRE : Reference

Wendy Welch and her husband had always dreamed of owning a bookstore, so when they left their high-octane jobs for a simpler life in an Appalachian coal town, they seized an unexpected chance to pursue their dream. The only problems? A declining U.S. economy, a small town with no industry and the advent of the e-book. They also had no idea how to run a bookstore. Against all odds, but with optimism, the help of their Virginian mountain community and an abiding love for books, they succeeded in building more than a thriving business - they built a community. It’s the story of how two people, two cats, two dogs and 38,000 books helped a small town find its heart.
